(Re: Amy Smith) Amy (Smith) we think you’re fantastic and are so happy that ‘M’ has had the opportunity to work with you. You’ve helped him so much; his confidence is really growing as his speech intelligibility improves. ~ K.U.
(Re: Amy Svensson) We are so excited to be working with Amy Svensson at Susan Cohn & Associates. It has made such a positive impact not only on our son, but on our entire family. My son usually resists going to scheduled events during the week, but he is excited and enthusiastic when it comes to his time to “play with Miss Amy”. Amy is warm, engaging, and enthusiastic with him – and he doesn’t even realize how hard he is working. As a parent, I am in awe of all of the information Amy possesses in regard to my son’s therapy. She is constantly introducing new/up-to-date therapy techniques, and discussing ways we can use everyday activities at home to help our son with his therapy. Amy has also been amazing in her ability to recognize my son’s area of strength and weakness with his speech – before I have even had the discussion with her about my current thoughts. We are thankful every single day that we have been fortunate enough to have our son work with Amy, and are so incredibly happy with the progress his is making with her. I have told our pediatrician, our opthamologist, our friends, and anyone who will listen – Susan Cohn and Associates is a wonderful experience! ~ K.A.
(Re: Amy Svensson) My son has been working with Amy Svensson for 3 years. He is 15 now and needs specialized guidance in speech and socialization as much as he ever did. The teen years are especially difficult for the child on the autism spectrum. My son has a willingness to work with and learn from Amy That kind of rapport is uncommon in my son’s world.As a parent I find her office cozy and friendly, and at the end of each session Amy spends time with me to explain the lesson and progress in a meaningful way.On a personal level, Amy has been able to help my son with real life solutions as my son weaves his way through this complicated word of communication and socialization. ~ C.J.
(Re: Toddie Downs) I have been going to Susan Cohn and associates on and off for 7 years as the parent of two special needs kids with autism and apraxia. Their therapists were professional and at the top of their field. Their intitial evaluation reports were thorough and well done. They had no problem coordinating with the SLP’s at the school district. They also coordinated with University of Washington to help us with our diagnosis. Their location in Issaquah is easy to get to. We hope to be with our therapist, Toddie Downs, for a long time to come. She is very committed to helping our son. ~ J.P.
(Re: Toddie Downs) Miss Toddie is amazing! My daughter was a little shy about going to speech therapy. She is eight years old and really needed help with learning how to articulate the R sound. By the time she completed her second session with Miss Toddie, she was able to say the R sound!! I could not believe the rapid progress my daughter made, I was truly shocked! She is no longer shy about going to speech and really looks forward to going every week and can’t wait to see Miss Toddie. My daughter is really proud of the progress she has made! ~ B.L.
(Re: Sarah Oarbeascoa) My 3 year old son has a pretty significant speech delay. Thank God we found Sarah Oarbeascoa at Susan Cohn & Associates. He has been attending twice weekly sessions since September and his speech is so improved! I can actually communicate verbally with him, which is something I couldn’t do before seeing her. We had such success I brought my 8 year old in to be evaluated for some articulation issues. He has been attending twice weekly sessions since January and his improvement is through the roof. If you are concerned at all about your child’s speech, please do yourself a favor and call Amy Svensson, the owner, to get an appointment scheduled. You will be happy you did. I know we are. ~A.R.
(Re: Danielle Nelson) We really enjoyed our time working with Danielle. Our son really responded to her, and that is not always the case with him. He made steady progress over the summer and we are excited to continue with his classes and build momentum. ~N.W.
(Re: Jessie Kellog-Smith) I just wanted you to know how much we love Jessie. She is excellent! I was the mom who was terrible about the home part of the therapy and she was so good and productive during her sessions that it overcompensated for my lack of attention. Friends and extended family noticed the improvement right away. Thank you! ~ R.G.
There are wonderful, caring speech therapists here that will give your child the individualized therapy he/she needs. When we first started bringing our son here he was 2 1/2 and he could only say around 5 words. In the past 6 months since he has been seeing Amy Smith and Amy Svensson he is now talking in sentences and has made amazing progress. I cant say enough good things about them! ~ M.W.
